  3. 3. Lions Club of Kalunga Members of Lion Club of Kalunga were pained to notice that people used to throw un- burnt fire wood, highlycontaminated wearing apparel, half burnt bodiesin to the Brahmani River during the process of disposal of mortal remains and thereby causing immense pollution to the river. This prompted Lions Club of Kalunga to venture for the construction of „MUKTI DHAM‟ Traditional Crematorium A Journey Accomplished

  7. 7. Lions Club of KalungaThe concept of the establishment of Muti-Dham was adopted from thealready existing such facilities at Jamnagar and Rajkot in Gujrat.Initially it was thought to establish Electronic Crematorium but the studyrevealed that it‟s establishment is not economically viable at this stage.Hence, a modest beginning was made for the establishment of improvisedTraditional Crematorium by installing two nos. of Cast Iron Pyres and thisfacility was dedicated to the people on 16th Oct‟2001.This was the beginning to save river water of Brahmani from pollution as wellas to minimize exploitation of Virgin Forest. A Journey Accomplished
  8. 8. Lions Club of KalungaThe notable features of improvised Traditional Crematorium are:1. The location of the crematorium has been so selected that in course of disposal of mortal remains, river water is not polluted.2. The improved pyres have been so designed to save at least 40% of firewood required to put the mortal remains into ashes. This comes to around 2 quintals (statistics show that about 5 quintals of wood on an average is consumed for total disposal of mortal remains). Statistics further show that on a average, at Rourkela, 6 bodies are put to flame daily, leading to a saving of 4380 quintals of wood per annum. This comes from 22 nos. of trees (A 50 year old tree yields about 200 quintals of wood on an average). Thus 22 trees per annum are saved from being cut. The process is very quick. This ultimately helps to conserve forest and maintain ecological balance.3. To provide comfort and soothing atmosphere during cremation to the mourners in the hour of their grief.4. To gift a greener earth to our future generations.5. To maintain clean and hygienic atmosphere at the cremation site.6. To make the whole process of cremation simpler & faster. A Journey Accomplished
